Numerous different activities will be on offer around the village giving us a taste of some of the things that horse-lovers enthuse about. Ski Joering (horse drawn skiing but as it is summer it is on roller blades!), carriage driving demonstrations, carriage and pony rides will liven up Les Carroz’s streets. Meanwhile blacksmith competitions will take place in the Place de l’Ambiance and heavy horse forestry clearance demonstrations in the market square. Everywhere you will find local producers of food and craft, showing and selling their wares alongside equestrian stalls during the Cavalcime.

Those taking part in the 4 hours trek at the heart of the Grand Massif have to be a member of the Equestrian French Federation. Tariff includes registration fee, the Saturday evening party and the Sunday picnic.  Full details from the les Carroz tourist office.
